MAYER'S NFL PICKS
Â MAYER'S COLLEGE PICKS
Texas -22 at Kansas: Longhorns off an unbelievable comeback win against Okie State after falling behind 35-7. Kansas threw a scare into Oklahoma at Norman last month andbeat Kansas State. This could be interesting. KANSAS.
Bears at Titans -5 1/2 total 35: Titans off much needed bye week should be well prepared against the Bears who are coming off big win in New York last week. This will be Tennessee's last home game for a long time as the play their next three games on the road. TITANS -5 1/2
SABER'S COLLEGE PICKS
Rice at UTEP -17: Rejuvenated El Paso playing every game like its for the National Championship. Revenge wont get any sweeter here as Rice the Minors last year 45-14 and never did call off the dogs. Look for El Paso to run it up here as they continue their winning ways. The Minors have covered six straight with their only loss coming at the hands of undefeated Boise St. UTEP -17
STRATTON'S NFL PICKS
at New England -7.5: The Patriots had no trouble with the Bills earlier this
season. And with their loss two weeks ago, the Pats won't be taking any team
lightly. The Bills's strength is its defense, but they won't move the ball
consistently. NEW ENGLAND.
at Indianapolis -9.5: There's no question that the Colts will be able to
score into the 30's against the Texans. Houston should be able to move the ball
through the air, but don't expect them to convert every red zone visit into
seven points. COLTS.
STRATTON'S COLLEGE PICKS
Diego State at Air Force -5.5: This has been a mediocre season for the flyboys,
but it's been worse for the Aztecs, who have been ravaged by injuries,
especially on the offensive line. Going from So Cal tropics to frigid Rockies
isn't an easy trip. AIR FORCE.
State at Arizona State -13.5: The Sun Devils' two losses this season were to USC
and Cal - arguably both Top 5 teams. The Cougars were lucky to beat the Bruins
last week after their top runner, Maurice Drew, left the game with a sprained
knee in the first quarter. WSU lost four straight Pac 10 games prior to that
one. ARIZONA STATE.
-13 at Duke: Clemson comes off three tough victories (Maryland, NC State and
Miami), the last one an overtime thriller against the Hurricane. Duke has lost
four straight ACC games but they covered all of them. They have a good shot to
stay close here. DUKE.
at Georgia Tech -8.5: This is the craziest scheduling spot of the season. Tech
is coming off a big win over NC State and have Virginia up next week.
Connecticut is playing for a post season bowl bid. The Huskies will be very
competitive in this spot. CONNECTICUT.
at Louisiana Tech -5.5: Tulsa has failed to win a game on the road this season
while giving up an average of 15 points/game. Tech's only loss at home was
against a hot UTEP squad. LOUISIANA TECH.
at Virginia -3.5: Because of Miami's woes that last couple of weeks (consecutive
losses to North Carolina and Clemson), the Hurricane actually gets more than a
field goal in a game they would be favored on a neutral field. That many points
is too good to pass up. MIAMI.
State at Stanford PK: The Beavers gave USC all they could handle last week,
although it was in the damp and dank northwest. Nevertheless, the Beavers are
finally playing as everyone expected at the season's start. OREGON STATE.
at Tulane -6: Tulane last week thrashed Navy 42-10. The also own a tough fought
win over Alabama-Birmingham as an 18-point favorite at home. Kind of a
no-brainer, isn't it? TULANE.
